Abstract

LOPEZ, Patricio; CARTAJENA, Isabel  and  NUNEZ, Lautaro. ANALYSES OF STABLE ISOTOPES IN CAMELIDS COLLAGEN BONES FROM TULÁN RAVINE, ATACAMA PUNA, EARLY FORMATIVE PERIOD: CA. 3,100-2,400 BP. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2013, vol.45, n.2, pp.237-247. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562013000200003.

This paper presents the results of isotope analysis (δ13C y δ15N) conducted on bone collagen found in Lama guanicoe and Lama glama remains from Tulán-85 and Tulán-54 archaeological sites. Both sites have been dated to the Early Formative Period (ca. 3,100-2,400 BP) and are located southeast of the Atacama Puna basin. Faunal samples were selected using anatomical and morphometric criteria. The results indicate divergences in the diets of both species, reflecting vegetation variation in the Tulán Quebrada caused by altitude differences and linked to hunting and herding areas.

Keywords : Atacama Puna basin; Tulán Ravine; South American camelids; stable isotopes.
